Spain and the United Kingdom saw slaughter numbers
increase, the latter by 10.5 percent.
Although the number of avian influenza outbreaks
has now declined, as of mid-July outbreaks were ongoing in six of the EU's member states.

Poultry exports, imports lower
Europe is the world's third largest exporter of poultry
meat by volume and, long term, exports are expected to
continue upwards. However, the first half of the year has
seen growth in exports go into reverse.
Several markets have closed, either partially or in
their entirety, to European exports. Exports contracted
by almost 3 percent to 626,000 tons over the first five
months of this year in comparison to the same period in
2016. There may be some relief for Europe's producers
as 2017 progresses and export markets reopen.
However, while the overall total was slightly lower,
not all export destinations turned negative. Among the
EU's main exports markets, sales to Ghana rose by
more than 48 percent, while those to Ukraine were up
by more than 43 percent. Despite these successes, sig-

nificant double-digit declines were recorded in several
important markets.
While overseas sales may have proved difficult,
the home market is offering some solace. Per capita
consumption is forecast to increase slightly this year to
23.81 kg, driven not only by consumers looking to eat
more healthily, but also by constrained consumer circumstances. Prices midyear are also slightly higher.
Import volumes over the first five months of 2017 were
also down, by almost 8 percent, but again, performance
was mixed across the EU's principal suppliers with imports from Chile down by almost 13 percent while those
from Ukraine were almost 71 percent higher. ■
